From the Baltic to the shores of the Pacific and through the arid steppes of Central Asia, relive on PC the biggest civil war ever!

October 1917. The Bolshevik Revolution starts a tidal wave that will sweep the whole of the XXth century. But the birth of the Communist regime was not an easy walk, and it faced dozens of tough but often unknown oppositions which did their utmost to destroy it in its infancy, in an amazing conflict where a central side is attacked from all corners and directions.

Make the Reds side triumph to save the Soviet Proletarian revolution, or, on the other side, lead the Whites side to victory in order to place the old regime back in power and protect the countries of Europe, weakened by the Great War, from the perils of the revolution.

The AGE engine is fine. It's had some comlaints since they tried to fit a full-on grand strategy game into the Pride of Nations title, and the turn resolution times suffered, but the rest of the games base on the engine are fine.

For some reason, people have issues wrapping their head around Drag & Drop functionality. That's one of the first learning curves I see people asking about. This engine was obviously meant to have a tabletop boardgame feel to it. Therefore, you pick up your army "pieces" and drop them where you want them to move during the simultaneous (WEGO) turn resolution. One of the guys who created the game mechanics is a long-time tabletop wargame designer of repute, and it shows in the style of these AGE games. That's always my first tip to beginners, "to give orders just drag & drop where you want your army to march". The second bump is a couple titles' Command Point system and having to set up the chain of command for your armies. Not all AGE games have this, however.

Sure it has a big learning curve, especially this title. It can also be very rewarding for someone interesting in historical turn-based strategy gaming once you learn the ins & outs.

Alea Jacta Est and Birth of Rome are some of the easier to learn, in the series. Birth Of America 2 is probably easier still. So those are good ones to learn with, despite some small differences in the internal mechanics between them. Revolution Under Siege is one of the more adanced ones, and it covers an interesting period of history that doesn't get much attention.

Looks like a lovely game. Too bad it's only for Windows. I'm not sure why Desura in Linux even shows it to me.

Agreed. It's a bit annoying. I would love to purchase the game but no Linux no money.
